My husband and I stayed at the Mariners Guest House while on a short break to Dorset. It was very good and the owner Yvonne was very helpful, in giving us directions and suggesting restaurants etc. Our room was very nice, and a good size. Everything was extremely clean and tidy, and the breakfast was wonderful. Only a slight comment... More

The Mariners is fantastic! Clean, conv, great breakfast and a lovely hostess in Yvonne. Very close to great pubs and restaurants and Yvonne is extremely helpful. 10-mins from the ferry terminal and a visit to the Quayside is a must. Can't wait for an excuse to return. Tip: Book early to avoid disappointment!!

We spent 3 nights at the guesthouse over the bank holiday weekend and loved it. The room was clean, bright & quiet. The breakfast was amazing - loved the fresh fruit and big choice for the hot options. We will definitely be back to stay again!

Well Yvonne, As a returning customer and staying with you again for my second visit to Poole, you've pulled out all the stops once more. What a fantastic host. Pleasant, welcoming, accommodating and the breakfasts are 5 star. It's a real pleasure coming to stay with you and would highly recommend your guesthouse to anybody that might be staying in... More
